5 Dollars

My life as an at-home momma of 3 amazing kids...it's kind of like shoveling snow in a blizzard.

Children's Museum 9/21/2006

The Children's Museum's old Mysteries in History exhibit is closing. Keithen and I had to go see our favorite piece in that gallery, the glass house. This house took over 500 hours to build. 24 hours alone were spent on the fence that surrounds it. It's a really cool piece and we'll miss examining it and pointing out all the cool little details.

Of course the carousel is always a favorite stop on our Museum visits. The Museum wasn't very crowded at all when we went last week. (One of the great advantages of year-round school!) We were the first ones on the carousel and got our pick of jumpers. There were maybe only 6 other people on the carousel with us.

The dinosaur art gallery is another area where the kids like to spend a lot of time. They enjoy making things with the clay and drawing their own masterpieces to take home. And of course Kaylee is not shy to tell anyone who talks to her, "I'm an artist!"

While we were in Playscape, three interpreters came out and got the kids singing and dancing. Ruby loved it!

Kaylee really enjoys the dinosaur dig. There was a great interpreter there last week who explained that, "When we find triceratops, we usually only find the head. We think triceratops must have tasted pretty good."

    Yeah, they usually close on Mondays after Labor Day. They should be open on Mondays again starting in March.

    Did you find something else to do?

    I love the old time carousels. There aren't many left unfortunately.

    We've have to go to San Francisco I think for the closest. It would be worth it. Totally restored, original calliope instead of canned music and wonderful.

    The calliope is great. I always love when they change it over to Christmas music in November! There are fiberoptic stars on the ceiling above the carousel as well.
